Because Life is Better at the Lake

Comments are Open for Proposed Hunting and Fishing Changes

Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at: tbehrcomm@gmail.com




The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Commission is considering a number of changes to hunting and fishing regulations in 2020. However, prior to making any decisions, the Commission wants input from constituents in Texas.

Among other things, TPWD is looking at implementing rules to administer an automated process for issuing pronghorn and antlerless mule deer permits, decreasing the daily bag limit for scaup and goose, and changing the hunting seasons for goose and snipe.

TPWD has posted details regarding all of these issues on its website and is accepting public comment on them until 9 a.m. March 25. Constituents may also comment in person at the TPWD headquarters in Austin during the commission meeting at 9 a.m. March 25.
